In the 3rd chapter of the great Éric Rohmer cycle, or the genius of modern French cinema, Tales from the Four Seasons (1990-1998: Spring Tale, Winter Tale, Summer Tale, Autumn Tale) are shown. “This last cycle, focused on what makes and breaks the bonds between people, resonates with the whole of the work and illuminates it: the synchronisms, the capital encounters, the spontaneous complicities, love at first sight.” Gabriela Trujillo (Cinematheque Française)
Éric Rohmer (1920-2010) began his professional career as a teacher and writer. In the 1950s, he began to frequent the cinephile milieu, film clubs and film magazines, where the group that would later create the Cahiers du Cinéma, which Rohmer came to direct, gathered.
From 1963 onwards, he devoted himself, without interruption, to cinema with the series Contos Morais, shot between 1963 and 1972, based on a book he had written but which at the time had not yet been published and which includes some of his most famous films: My Night at Maud’s House (1969) and Claire’s Knee (1970).
Classical and modern, literature and cinema, the contradictions between morality and desire are recurring themes and questions in his work. Elegant, precise, innovative and attentive to details, Éric Rohmer was one of the important figures in the nouvelle vague and in the history of cinema.
